ID: CC10754
A terrific combination of a number of rare mineral species from the Tsumeb mine in Namibia.  A roughly 1.4 x 1.3 patch of pumpkin-orange fibrous Ludlockite displays well on a block of dark grey ore; probably mainly mixed Chalcocite and Tennantite, but with components of Germanite and Renierite due to the presence of pinkish metallic patches.  Richly pervading the ore are numerous lustrous black metallic plates of the iron arsenite Schneiderhöhnite.  This particular paragenesis strongly suggests this specimen is from the deepest section of the mine on 44 Level (1,650 m or 5,413 ft, subsurface).  A great example of Ludlockite with Schneiderhöhnite from Tsumeb.
